McJac’s Roadhouse Grille was one of three choices I gave my friend for brunch in BC. She chose this one, because of the distance and the time we had. McJac’s is kind of in the middle of nowhere along King George Hwy in South Surrey. It was quite busy, as at that location, there is just this Roadhouse, their bakery, and a Mac’s convenience store. This restaurant is quite unique with 4 different dining areas with very different decors. We ate in the Retro Room where it was really old school furniture, paint, and posters.
We wanted to try out a bunch of the menu. We ordered a breakfast combo that came with our choice of sausage, ham or bacon with hasbrowns, 2 eggs, and toast. We went for the sausage with scrambled eggs, and sourdough toast. I went for the Raisin French Toast. We also ordered the Grilled Cheese and added ham to it as well as some Corn Bread and Banana bread because they were just $2 each.
The breakfast was pretty standard. The hashbrowns were thicker cubed potatoes, seasoned nicely. A little crisp outside, and airy inside. The sausage patties were moist, but a bit salty. The grilled cheese was nice and buttery and crisp. The cheese wasn’t anything special or particular tasty, but it was decent. The ham was a nice addition, cut the right thickness, but again a bit salty.
The french toast was made with Raisin bread and pretty good. I know a lot of people don’t like raisins in many things, but I’m one that does like it in breads. It adds extra flavour and texture and a bit of sweetness. These raisins were plump, and not too dry. The bread was nice and sweet.
Now onto our favourites. The corn bread and banana bread were delicious. They were cut thick from the loaf, and then placed on the griddle for a bit to give it a nice toast. The corn bread wasn’t too dry, but it was still crumbly. I wish I had some honey butter on the side, but even without it was still really good.
McJac’s is a really popular restaurant. Our room was packed, and I wonder how packed the others were. They also have a bakery next door with lots of breads, and pastries. They also have a deli and cheese section. I’d go back to order stuff from the bakery because we were too full to take some home last time.
